try either downloading tweak xp and enabling the show administrator acct on logon, or at your logon screen hit ctrl-alt delete twice and at the w2k style prompt type administrator and whatever your normal password is
I had them all checked except the Owner one which, when you press 'apply' reverts back to unchecked. I noticed the Owner was set as 'administrators', and I changed that, but still no luck. I thought I read that the Updates site was back on-line, and I'm wondering if I'm one of the ones who still can't get on.
EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
